  And the RINO's take to the streets, running in terror, like little girls
Bloomberg.com: U.S.: "April 20 (Bloomberg) -- Republican Senator Lincoln Chafee is ``less likely'' to support John Bolton's nomination to be U.S. ambassador to the United Nations because of the allegations he mistreated subordinates, a spokesman for Chafee said.

Chafee's vote against Bolton on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, combined with the united opposition of Democrats, would leave Republicans at least one vote short of recommending his nomination to the full Senate.

White House officials said the allegations against Bolton were ``trumped-up'' and part of the ``ugly side of Washington.'' The administration is ``absolutely not'' considering withdrawing his nomination, White House spokesman Scott McClellan said.

Bolton, who was nominated by President George W. Bush, is needed at the United Nations as the world body moves forward on reforms, McClellan said. ``He is someone who has a long record of results in getting things done,'' McClellan said. ``And sometimes you get people mad at you when you get things done.''"
